Poem: Hi, Summer is Ku-ing

Green gowned catalpa
poses with white corsages,
a June graduate.

Orange poppies pop out
from green cocoon phalluses,
bees about to buzz.

Sunbathing black snake
stirred on the stream-smoothed stones,
hisses French kisses.

My hammock's cocoon
curving in a deep-slung arch,
smiling between trees.

These childhood de-lights,
fireflies playing peek-a-boo.
The night is winking.
